Vaccinations for Dogs
Dogs require certain vaccinations to keep them safe and healthy throughout their life. When you bring your dog in for their vaccinations, you are doing your part to protect your pet’s health as well as the health of other dogs in the community. Our team will assess your pet’s age, breed, sex, and lifestyle when crafting a recommendation for your dog’s vaccination program.
There are a few universal vaccinations that you dog will need to stay healthy for the long term:
- Parvovirus – This vaccine protects against a dangerous, highly contagious virus that can affect the gastrointestinal system and the cardiac system. Because puppies are particularly susceptible to the cardiac version of this disease (sometimes with fatal results), this vaccine is considered a core vaccine for all dogs.
- Distemper – This serious viral illness has no known cure, which means vaccinating against distemper is extremely important. It attacks various systems in your pet’s body, including respiratory, urogenital, gastrointestinal, and the nervous system.
- Rabies – One of the better known viral infections, rabies can be severe or even fatal in both pets and humans. It is important that you vaccinate your pet to protect against this disease that can ravage the central nervous system.
- Canine Influenza
Vaccinations for Cats
Like dogs, cats also need protection from various transmissible diseases. Our team will help you understand what vaccines are recommended for your cat based on their age, sex, breed, and lifestyle in addition to the core vaccinations listed below.
Most cats should receive the following vaccines:
- Rabies – Like dogs, cats can be affected by rabies as well. It is important that your cat receive this vaccine and the boosters regularly.
- Feline leukemia virus – This is a severe disease which is the leading cause of death in cats. It causes anemia or lymphoma, which can lead to other diseases or infections.
